Long story, short version... I ended up switching my Xbox on today and watching a video about Trials Evolution. And I felt a bit of a tingling joy at what I beheld. So I went onto Youtube and found the following videos:
Teaser trailer (also available on this site).
Now I loved Trials HD when it came out on XBLA, and so the news of a sequel has grabbed my attention. What is of particular interest to me with Evolution though is not the stellar level upgrades or the new in-game bonuses (watch the XBL video for more details), but the 4-player multiplayer races Red Lynx are going to give us. You and three other mates in the same room or online will be able to race each other real-time. A simple update you might think, but to those who played HD I'm sure this will tickle your fancy,
I'm not sure when it will be released yet, but I have 1200 points set aside for this little beauty on release day.
For those who would like to meet up in the multiplayer:

Trials HD is a solid game. I was happy to have got it on one of the XBL sales. I think it was around Christmas that I got it, plus the DLC for the game. Watching the videos of the sequel has tickled my fancy. Makes me want to play Trials HD, but yes, the 4 player races has fun written all across it.

Big fan of Trials myself. Have Second Edition on Steam and HD for 360.
Very much looking forward to this.

Man if it weren't cause i got a bunch of games i need to catch up on i would've bought Trials HD cause i enjoyed the heck out of that demo. Same goes for Bastion.
But, yeah, Evolution is looking sweet.

I watched some videos on this one at the start of the week and it looks brilliant. As does the new Joe Danger if people prefer their motorbike games a little less frustrating.

Looks like a great game! Is it just on XBLA?

I havent put nearly as much time in trials HD as I should/could have, there's just always something else to play! And i do get bored easily with restarting all the time lol. There's just only so much repetition I can take!
I'll certainly be interested what they can offer with the sequel though. Even a graphics spruce and the 4 player is enough to make it worthwhile, but if they're anywhere near as adventurous with the new one as the original, then I expect the creative tools to be massively improved as well!!
